Like a charging bear, since 2008 Scythia have been playing epic progressive metal with a twist of folklore. Each member, while bringing their own style, have coined their own sound while drawing from different genres. Scythia's albums, tracks, and performances features rich, poetic storytelling, and grand tales that captures the imagination of all who are privy to its lyrical melody. Because of this, and touring like a cavalry of nomads, they have taken the independent scene by storm as they gather more and more fans both domestically and internationally.

Scythia acquired its name from vocalist/guitarist Dave Khan's infatuation with a painting of Nordic/Russian warriors riding bears while brandishing swords. Scythia not only gives the painting musical significance, but it is also the name of an ancient empire spanning from the Caucasus through Russia, and even into eastern Scandinavia.

Scythia delivered their first album "Of War" in 2010 where the band's distinctive sound was forged, which carried on to their next release "Of Exile". These albums featured sound effects, narration and classical instrumentation to help drive home their story.
While recording their third release, "For The Bear", their sole purpose was to bring great melodic metal to the table, which in response has received nothing but a sensational response in the media and radio. "For The Bear" is a seven-track EP, that steps away from the orchestration and central concept of its predecessors and is faster, more aggressive, and far tighter.

Early on in 2013 the band is getting recognition with more reviewers giving them high ratings. Most of all they were nominated for the Best Metal Group/Duo for Canada's Sirius XM Indies - Independent Music Awards. Other nominees include Bison B.C, Derelict, Devin Townsend Project and Mares Of Thrace. This is a great honor for the band to be included as nominees for these awards since they represents the Canadian independent music scene.

Over the next two years, Scythia has its sights set on new and larger horizons. The upcoming years will unboundedly be exciting for Scythia as they set ahead to working on their next album which will be produced by Nino Laurenne (Ensiferum, Wintersun, Kiuas, Firewind). They are getting ready and packed for more touring in Canada and then setting sail across the seas to international venues. Scythia is a hard working group, they keep aligning themselves with the right people to move forward they are also one of those bands that simply gets better with each album, and with every show.
